Out of about one thousand families, the last year's ex[>erienee in matrimony has resulted in the granting of one hundred and ten divorces. As a French journal very justly observes, our Courts seem equally ready to declare coucubiuage marriage and to reduce the latter to the level of the former relation. In the Eastern States some degree of disrepute is attached to divorced persons, particularly female accomplices in or victims of that proceeding.
